The Department of Labor’s HIRE Vets Medallion Award is the only federal-level veteran’s employment award that recognizes employers for their investments in recruiting, employing, and retaining our nation’s veterans. This award is an opportunity to highlight your organization’s work to support America’s veterans
The award is based on a number of criteria, ranging from veteran hiring and retention to providing veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, dedicated human resources, and compensation and tuition assistance programs – with requirements varying for large, medium, and small employers.
Applications are now open and will run through April 30, 2020. Job creators of all sizes can apply online and learn more about the application process at HireVets.gov.
